About this Series
To the Danes, he is skraelingr; to the English, he is orcnéas; to the Irish, he is fomoraig.
He is Corpse-maker and Life-quencher, the Bringer of Night, the Son of the Wolf and Brother of the Serpent.
He is Grimnir, and he is the last of his kind—the last in a long line of monsters who have plagued humanity since the Elder Days.
Scott Oden presents a dark, epic historical fantasy series set in an alternative medieval world, where ancient creatures of Norse mythology seek revenge against the new religion that has supplanted them—Christianity.
“Steeped in an appreciation for the terrifying and powerful characters of high fantasy… [Oden] provides a satisfying saga that’s as complex as an old tree’s roots, and a pleasure to read.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A rich, grim fantasy world made from Norse, Anglo-Saxon and Celtic myth with strands of Tolkien. … Recommended for lovers of Tolkien, dark fantasy and northern mythology.” — Historical Novel Society
